wow, each iteration is polished enough to be a final product. impressive work.
it would be interesting to hear why the design went down the path it did -- there's some pretty big leaps along the way.
Thank you very much, Jim!
I'm not sure I'd still remember the reasoning behind most of these decisions (some of the first iterations are, after all, nearly 2 years old) and I doubt it would be all that interesting. But if I can find the time to sit and write down whatever I can recall, I'll definitely do that!
2 years to design a website! What was the budget for this project?!
Haha not really, Pramesh, take it easy.
I did start working on it two years ago, but my work is long finished. I just couldn't share it until the client decided to make it public, which happened very recently.
Still, to answer your question: the budget was a lot lower than it should ;)
I'm also interested in the shift that happened from v0.3 -> v0.4 and onward. I really love the dark vibe you had originally.
That aside, really very cool to see you iterate on this.
Nice to see someone else using Apaxy!
This was great. I like the design choice of removing the photos because it emphasizes design, instead of spaces which would remind me of real estate. I need to do this with more of my projects.
Great work and focus on detail. May I ask if you do the coding as well?
Thank you Giovanni. Yes, I did all of the frontend code.
I really wanted to do the backend as well, but the client wasn't too keen on it, for some reason, and the thing was slightly botched by the guys who did the backend, unfortunately. Story of my life, I guess...
For me, v0.4 as a step backward, only taken forward again with v0.8.
Love the animations! Great work Eduardo!
Really nice shifts in the movements of each elements. I love how the initial concepts (slight movements in each of the three sections) seem like the core of the final idea and how you switched from a photograph to very specific graphics. Really great work and thanks for sharing!
Why is your "index of /" page is so beautiful, are you using nginx?
--- edit ---
I just found out that was a theme call apaxy :)
Mayfair Display! I recognize that lovely typeface. Performance aside, you can even turn on all the pretty ligatures. :)
Beautiful design considering you only used Google fonts to achieve such level of polish.
Some of the Google fonts are extraordinary.
What were the metrics you used as a north star to guide the process? How did those numbers increase over time?
Really inspiring! I love your color palette and svg. Simplicity at it's finest.
